This tutorial was written for those that have a working knowledge of PSP (I use Version 9).

Tube or image of choice
Scrapkit: "Bon Temps Collection - Lafayette" by "Oopsie Daisy" and can be purchased here.
Mask(s): Weescotslass Mask 355, you can find it here.
Here we go!
Open a new image, 600x600 (we can resize later), flood fill with white.
Open frame1 - Copy, paste as a new layer, resize to your liking.
Open paper2 - Copy, paste as a new layer, move underneath frame layer, apply WSL355 mask, merge down, use deform raster tool to "shrink" it closer to the frame.
Open beads - Copy, paste as a new layer, move underneath frame.
Open screwhead - Copy, paste as a new layer, resize considerably, move to left corner of frame, duplicate, mirror.
Open tube or image of choice - Copy, paste tube as new layer, make any resizing now, and if necessary, move underneath frame layer.
Open assortment of flowers and other elements of choice - Copy, paste each as a new layer, resizing and rotating to your liking.
At this point, I usually resize if I need a smaller image. I also save both the original size and the smaller size images.
Add a new vector layer for your name - (I floodfilled mine with paper11) To make it stand out I duplicated then dropshadowed top layer.
Go back through to sharpen and add a drop shadow to your layers.
Add your copyright as the finishing touch.
Save your tag in your favorite format and you are done!!
